News Roundup for February 20th, 2015

Onii-chan, Ittekimasu!

Who would have thought that imoutos are more popular outside of Japan? The Nadenade Mezamashi alarm clock app gets 140% more traffic from foreign IPs so the developers are sending her to study abroad and learn English with the help of user donations. Send 3000 yen to their Campfire crowdfunding page and as thanks they'll send you a custom message where your imouto calls you by your name! If that doesn't get you up in the morning, nothing will.

Otacool Underground

Noitamina hasn't released much information about next spring's original work, Punch Line--aside from the fact that the world will EXPLODE if the protagonist sees a panty shot. Judging from the cheeky trailer I can say that humanity is as good as dead. Look forward to peeping tomfoolery and a banging soundtrack from pop music mogul Tetsuya Komuro (TM Network, Namie Amuro, Globe).

Chaos Dragon anime adaptation

Fate/Zero dream team Gen Urobuchi and Kinoko Nasu, light novelists Izuki Kougyoku (Garden Lost) and Ryohgo Narita (Durarara!!), and illustrator Simadoriru sat down for six nights of tabletop role-playing led by Rental Magica author Makoto Sanda. You can read transcripts from their adventures in the realm of the mad dragon god on the Sai-Zen-Sen homepage, but why bother now that the anime adaptation, Chaos Dragon, is due this summer courtesy of Silver Link and director Masano Matsune (Assassination Classroom, Dangan Ronpa). The same format worked for Record of Lodoss War, so roll the dice and hope for another critical hit.

Gangs of Neo-New York

After far too long of a absence Trigun author Yasuhiro Nightow returns to the small screen with Blood Blockage Battlefront. The story revolves around a group of badasses living in a bombed-out version of New York where they prevent other-dimensional monsters and demons from invading ours. With blood magic martial arts, brass knuckle crucifixes and a dude named "Zapp Renfro" we can expect a wicked good time when the anime adaptation arrives next year.
